  2. DEAR Guest,

    Thank you for your continued support, we have not moved software platforms since 2005!
    We was a keen vBulletin forum but vBulletin decided to make a bloated VB5 platform and drop support for VB4, We cannot continue to operate with thousands of visitors daily and a bloated software that is not supported.
    To our Long standing members we know this will be a challange and you might not like change, but please explore all options and give it a try, we will of course over the coming weeks try and bring back the items from vbulletin that you enjoyed the most.
    We have setup a thread for discussion and feedback here:


    Thank you!

    I have ee broadband and have one of the ee brightboxes. Up till a couple of days ago I could pick up the 5ghz wifi and the 2.5 on all capable devices in all areas of my home, now no device can see the 5ghz wifi, router no been moved , nothing changed, just been into router settings and its still enabled etc but not getting picked up.

    Anyone any experience of this?

    Sounds like their issue, I'd be ringing them saying there is a modem/router fault. Highly unlikely all Your devices have gone faulty on 5ghz.

    Have you named your 5Ghz SSID differently from the 2.4 ?

    As Freddj said SSID ,make sure its turned on , and change RF channels to higher channels, narrow the beam signal,, 5 gh is not as strong as 2.4.

    There are some good utilities for scanning the wifi environment, this will let you use channels you know are clear rather than hoping for the best. As for bandwidth, 5G is no weaker than 2.4G per se, it's just that high frequencies have a shorter range. That's just physics, happens with light, sound, radio waves...
